Lonely Hearts Lingerie StyleOnTheCouch

Lonely hearts label lingerie styleonthecouch SABELHWBRIEFLonely Hearts is a perfect combination of chic, cute and sexy rolled into one.  Boasting a collection of both clothing and underwear, Lonely Lingerie is a simple but very pretty label presenting longline and soft cup bras, briefs and cutout panties.  Describing Lonely as simple is probably quite misleading, since their simplicity is far from basic with their silhouettes complete with criss cross and wrap around strapping that adds that extra bit of oomph.

One of my favourite styles is the Anouk longline bra (image top) in bright blue. Also available in mint, this  bra with scalloped lace detail has a very seductive mesh panel back and frilled elastic detail on the straps.  Another favourite, the Sabel cut out bra (third image in the post) in dark green or charcoal from the ‘Chloe’ collection is a daring design with lace cups and velvet straps. If you are attracted to pretty, delicate things, then Lonely is perfect for you. Click HERE to view stockists, and HERE to buy online.

Friday Lingerie Lust: Marika Vera

Marika Vera‘s strapline ‘Better Than Naked’ is truth*.  The moment I saw their forthcoming autumn winter 2012 collection Queen Of The Galaxy I knew our Friday was made, Blog Reader:

“While the United States had Wonder Woman, Europe had Barbarella, a secret agent who would go on missions to other planets to protect Earth – all the while surviving the deadly Orgasmatron and using the power of seduction to control men and keep the world at peace….”

Tapping into all my our superheroine fantasies, Marika Vera’s series of bodysuits, kimono wraps and lingerie sets have been designed in stretch velvet, chiffon, silk and tulle fabrics which have a wonderful feel against the skin.  A palette of rich purples; amethyst, fuchsia and violet – are the psychedelic shades that bring the collection to life.

I have two favourites from this collection.  First of all, the June Culotte (second image and below) a stretch silk satin brief in high waist, retro style with stretch tulle details and some delightfully placed cut-outs. Second is the Sue Catsuit, a marvellous stretch tulle design with satin elastic binder and some very ‘discrete’ yet practical cut outs.

“Marika Vera exists to empower women, to inspire them to live sensually in a pleasing and sophisticated way for themselves and others.”

Is there anything I need to add to this?  Happy Friday Lingerie Lust, Blog Reader!  You can buy Marika Vera from Faire Frou Frou, Assiere and Bella Bella Boutique.  Stay tuned for the release of Queen Of The Galaxy this summer.

*To be distinguished from my gym‘s strapline “Look Better Naked”, which always gets me working out, pronto.
